Fun With E-Drums

A few weeks back, my best friend and musical life partner, Shaun and myself got together to record some tunes with his electric drum kit.

The idea is to expand the one-man acoustic show to include a more rockin’ set. Aside from sounding fantastic, the e-drums have a very important feature for smaller venues: volume control. Hopefully in the future we’ll be playing some bars where drums wouldn’t normally be welcome–unless Shaun played with dry spaghetti instead of drum sticks.

In the meantime, don’t forget I’ll be playing at the Blind Tiger Pub this Friday from 8 – 11 p.m. (sans drums this time).

Here’s a sample of one of our recent rehearsals with a few cameras thrown up around the room:

  1. Reblogged this on Shaun Andrews and commented:
    The v-drums are fun, and super easy to record.

  2. I remember a show, way back in high school, where my bandmates asked me to use brushes. For the entire set. I believe we played some Led Zeppelin that night. Dry spagetti may have been an improvement. I could have bundled it up and made spagetti hot rods.
